Compass helps you make intelligent financial and investment decisions. We deliver trusted financial advice to you with our expertise, people, information, and technology. Compass embraces the total financial planning approach in working with its clients. Time is taken to assess each client’s needs, goals, time horizon and appetite for risk. We believe that integrating these factors support our clients’ goals for a successful investing experience.
Compass, as Your Trusted Financial AdvisorSM, seeks to provide a favorable long-term investor experience through uniquely constructed asset allocation portfolios designed to help you achieve your goals. Our process is to match your goals to an investment strategy that can offer you market like returns with less than market risk. Studies have confirmed our belief that the overwhelming determinant of success in an investment strategy is not which specific securities or funds were included, but how the assets were divided among the asset classes.
Our mission is to be “Your Trusted Financial AdvisorSM ” by providing you with the best quality personalized financial and investment advice. We believe in advising clients in a professional manner, understanding the investment vehicles that we select through due diligence, and in placing the client’s interest first.
Once our analysts have examined economic and capital market conditions, diversified allocation commitments are made to specific asset categories (i.e. cash, bonds, foreign and domestic stocks, and non-correlated assets). We then select individual mutual funds, ETFs, or securities to complete the portfolio’s investment objective. Compass’s investment committee reassesses its allocation and manager commitments at least quarterly and makes changes to the portfolios under its advisement as warranted.
